The last day of our adventure began at Fort Clatsop, the winter quarters for the Corps of Volunteers for NorthWestern Discovery. As we did at Fort Mandan, and the Capitol at Helena, we raised our flag on the flagpole. ok

 

 

Our final nite was a medley of laughs, tears, goodbyes, corny gags and moving talks and presentations. Carroll Broome was invited to go on this trip by his older brother Charlie, so Carroll presented him with a large Jefferson peace medal.

This group presented a skit entitled Sacre Bleu, about an incident at the Nez Perce village near Orofino, ID, where Lewis and Clark built dugout canoes for their first downstream route since leaving Camp Wood, IL.

To find out what the skit is about look up Oct. 5 in the Lewis and Clark Journals. You can get it here.
